Hakko Micro Soldering Irons

Surface Mount Technology (SMT)

Micro Components SMT

Surface Mount Technology (SMT) is a method where electrical components are mounted on the surface of the circuit board. As the demands for compact and lightweight electronic devices increases, electrical components are progressively manufactured to be smaller and placed closer together. 

However, such small micro components can be hard to see and solder with the use of traditional soldering irons, even under a microscope. To combat this issue, micro soldering irons are used!

What is a Micro Soldering Iron?

Micro soldering irons are designed for smaller electrical components that include 0201s, 01005, 008004 and more. They are slimmer and shorter than the traditional soldering irons and the tips used are also smaller in diameter, which make it easier when working under a microscope.
